Believe it or not, so was I (Elementary School during the mid-to-late 70's). In most cases, it wasn't until listening to AOR stations years later that I realized it was, indeed, Alice Cooper's music that I had been listening to. Having said that, I also cannot definitively speak about his affect on the era, at least at his peak, but I have to believe, and hope, that it was larger than Morris Albert or The Starland Vocal Band.
